Today, I continue my ongoing series of conversations with published authors as I’m joined by talented author and super cool Notre Dame superfan Michael Amodei. Mike joins me to chat about his newly released book Reaching for Heaven: 14 Spiritual Goals as You Grow Older. My personal journey over the last year saw me facing a cancer diagnosis and turning sixty years old. Either of these situations would have had me contemplating big thoughts. The two coming together helped me gain some greatly needed perspective on the gift and privilege of aging. Mike's book has been a wonderful gift ..read more

In anticipation of today's celebration of Earth Day, I was happy to take part in a webinar with my friends at Paraclete Press. As you'll see in the video here, we read through my book "I Am Earth's Keeper" and then talked about simple ways to celebrate care for our common home. If you haven't yet read the book, this is a great way to have a sneak peek at the beautiful artwork by award-winning Italian illustrator Giuliano Ferri. As always, I'm happy to come virtually to your parish group or classroom to read this book or my other children's books aloud. Feel free to reach out if you're interes ..read more

This week, my latest "book baby" made its very quiet launch into the world. My fourth project with my friends at Paraclete Press, I Am Earth's Keeper is different and unique in ways that both delight and terrify me.

First and foremost, I'm grateful to my friend David Knowles, whose beautiful photograph of a quiet Mississippi morning sparked my imagination. I'm also truly grateful to my friend and mentor Maria Morera Johnson and my incredibly talented son Adam Hendey for helping me to understand the meter challenges implicit in writi ..read more

I wanted to update everyone since so many of you have kindly checked in on me in the last week. When it gets quiet here, it's because I'm focusing intensely on rest and recovery.

I still have some issues, but I am learning how to manage them more effectively. I've also spent the last week trying to wrap my mind around the Diabetes (Type 2) diagnosis. Humongous gratitude to every one of you who has shared recipes, resources, and encouragement. I will be seeing th ..read more
